Need a coder who is reliable and has good experience with this sort of thing, the site needs to be: fast, reliable and secure.
So far we are looking to base this on phpBB as it has most of the functionality already but if you have any other suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.
I've given a very brief outline of the site below, please PM me with any questions or suggestions.
- The homepage should be simple with a short descrition of the site until users log in
- users log into the site from the homepage
- users will be directed to their profile page
- The user can add a story to a section of their profile page and will choose weather to make it public
- if a story is made public, it will appear on their profile page and in the news page
- If the story is not made public, it will only be available to that user
- users can make friends with other users
- users can personal message other users
- users can view other profile pages and their stories (diplayed on their profile) but only the stories that have been made public
Profile Page and Story history (viewed by another user)
- contains limited information about the user, date joined, last active and acievements
- Also Contains a history of all their public stories (in chronological order), multiple entries should be allowed per day, with the user comments on those stories
- Users should be able to gain achievements by checking a box when writing a story. this achievement will show in icon format on their profile page, a short description ot the achievement should be in alternative text.
- is a feed of all of the stories that have been made public
- users will be able to comment on stories
- will have space for other content
- there will be a filter to show either stories of friends or all public stories and they should show from top to bottom in chronological order
- there must be space around the side of all pages to host adverts
- the section for other content on the news feed should be customisable (but does not need a user interface), it should be set out well in a known file so that it can be changed easily
Visually, we are looking for a black glass theme with our own logo that we would like in the top left hand corner, if web design is not your field, please state this in your description and we can find it with another project.
